Saying ‘being physically challenged is not an excuse to break the law’ is a perfect statement that cannot be more correct.

But in the case of Yinka Ayefele’s demolished Music House, the statement has been subjected to questioning because as many would say, context is important.

Governor Abiola Ajimobi of Oyo State made the statement on Wednesday in an interview with the Yoruba service of the British Broadcasting Corporation, BBC, after the Eid-el-Kabir prayers in Ibadan.

After initially denying the demolition, Ajimobi has now thrown his weight behind the act saying he sees nothing wrong in the demolition.

“Just like the house they said we demolished, that man didn’t obey the law. People are now saying because he’s physically challenged.

“So, if one is physically challenged, he should break the law?

“They said he employed people, are armed robbers not employers of labour too? Should we now say because armed robbers employ people, they should continue to rob and terrorise others? We shall pity them, but we have to obey the law.”

Ajimobi might be defending the law on this one but he is against the world as the NBC, SERAP, Afenifere and several other professional, civil society and cultural organisations are behind Ayefele.
